Steward requests/Miscellaneous

(Redirected from SRM)
Requests and proposals Steward requests (Miscellaneous) Archives

This page is for Wikimedia wikis having no active administrators. Requests can be made here for specific administrative actions (such as page deletion) to be performed by a steward or global sysop. In other cases:

  • If the wiki does have active administrators, file the request with one of them.
  • If the wiki has an active editor community, any potentially controversial action (deletion of actual content, edit to a protected page, renaming of a protected page, etc.) should receive consensus from the wiki community before being requested here, and a link should be provided to that consensus in the request.
  • For global lock/block requests, file a request at Steward requests/Global.
  • For non-controversial deletion requests such as empty page, simple spam or vandalism, and non-controversial or emergency requests to block vandals, spammers or other malicious users, you may use global sysop requests instead.
  • If a consensus is considered required to act, similar principles apply as expressed at Steward requests/Permissions/Minimum voting requirements, and can be used for guidance to how and what should be done at small and medium communities to gain a consensus.

To add a new request, create a new section header at the bottom of the "Manual requests" section using the format below:

=== Very brief description of request here ===
{{Status|In progress}}
Give details about your request here. --~~~~

It is helpful if you can provide a link to the wiki (or the specific page on the wiki) in question, either in the header or in the body of your request.

When reporting cross-wiki vandalism, the following template calls can be used to link to a user's contributions across all Wikimedia content wikis (these are for logged in users and non-logged-in users, respectively):

* {{sultool|Username}}

* {{luxotool|IP.address}}

Template {{LockHide}} can also be used in appropriate cases.

To request approval of OAuth consumers please use {{oauthapprequest}} (see the documentation before using).

Old requests are archived by the date of their last comment.

"fake namespace" at mhrwikiEdit

Status:    In progress
Moved from GSR.

Please nuke w:mhr:Special:PrefixIndex/Викиувер: OOS/No useful content. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 19:02, 8 June 2022 (UTC)

This appears to be an improvised namespace for a Wikinews subproject. ~~~~

19:48, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
Is there any policy or consensus on this matter? NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 19:56, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
alswiki has a similar project. I suppose there was consensus given the number of pages, but not sure if that's sufficient to request the namespace to be actually created on Phabricator. ~~~~
User:1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk)
20:02, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
According to w:mhr:Category:Викиувер, some of them were even created in Wikipedia namespace. I can't find any discussions that mention Викиувер; would you mind asking some local users (in Russian)? NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 20:23, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
  Done. ~~~~

20:31, 8 June 2022 (UTC)
Nearly three weeks have passed. Given that this page is only for non-controversial requests, those article can probably be left there for now. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 15:54, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
I wonder whether this is sufficient to create a Phab task. ~~~~
User:1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk)
20:32, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
They should definitely be imported to Incubator, but, given that no comments were left at the discussion you started, it is likely that they will continue creating such articles. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 21:15, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
Moving this from GSR to SRM for further consideration, since this is no longer a simple request. ~~~~

00:01, 4 July 2022 (UTC)
Thanks. Pinging users who are active at mhrwiki recently: @Frhdkazan and VolnyiLev. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 00:25, 4 July 2022 (UTC)
  •   Comment I think they can be moved to existing namespace for now. It can be something like 'Wikipedia/wikinews/PAGENAME'. From there, community can decided what to do with those. Right now, I don't think we need a new namespace, and it's not up to us to decide that anyway. The community should get a consensus for a new namespace to be created.--BRP ever 00:36, 4 July 2022 (UTC)
    I suppose the fact the namespace is de facto used is some kind of consensus. I don't think WP namespace is really appropriate for them though (only a few are currently located there, more likely on accident). ~~~~

Deletion request on viwikiquoteEdit

Status:    In progress

Please help delete all the pages that are in this category, they are the ones that need to be speedily deleted. Unfortunately, viwikiquote doesn't have any admins except the Abuse filter. Thanks a lot -- MagicalNight97 (talk) 12:38, 25 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi @MagicalNight97, thanks for your request! I reviewed some of the pages.
In case you're interested in acquiring adminship at vi.wikiquote, you can do that by making a request at q:vi:Wikiquote:Bảo quản viên (and after a week, ask a steward to evaluate the request at SRP). This will let you to delete similar pages yourself, without having to wait for a steward or a global sysop.

Outdated (super ancient) database report pagesEdit

Status:    In progress

After deleting a set of weird-looking project-namespace pages from 2004 apparently resembling database reports (now found at special pages), which, once created, had never been updated, it turned out that these also exist in the same old state on quite a few other smaller wikis with a total of 256 pages of this style I could find. Since this is kind of a larger issue, I would like to ask here first whether there is any value in keeping any of these pages – as far as I can see, they are only confusing if not misleading. ~~~~

This pages have no function. The content is in html and not in wikitext. 𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 👤💬 20:19, 10 October 2022 (UTC)
I think those can be deleted. That said, some of the pages you mention are marked as archived content – for those, it's worth checking before doing anything.
Maybe a village pump message to affected projects, and take an action after (assuming no objections are raised)? This doesn't feel like something that should be decided from Meta  . Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:31, 1 November 2022 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4: What do you think about my Village pump suggestion above? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:35, 3 November 2022 (UTC)
It is sensible, though I don't think I have the time to notify every wiki in question. Looks like @WikiBayer has also been deleting some recently. ~~~~

Delete pages with >5000 revisionsEdit

Please, delete this bot-updated pages. This pages doesn't needed anymore, because they was transferred to Commons' namespace Data: and now are used from Commons.

MBH (talk) 16:12, 3 November 2022 (UTC)

Hello @MBH,
afaics, you're not an admin on any of those projects (and not all of those pages have 5k+ revisions)
For the following pages, please ask a local admin for deletion (since all those projects have local admins, stewards can't delete pages there – doing so would be overstepping the Stewards policy):
For the remaining few pages, please ask a local admin on those projects to confirm the bigdelete request. Once the requests are confirmed, me or a fellow steward can execute it.
Thank you for your understanding, Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:33, 3 November 2022 (UTC)
ru-wiki admin here, please proceed Ghuron (talk) 17:18, 3 November 2022 (UTC)

Note to stewards and fellow GS : blocked at sqWPEdit

A quick note to all, that I have placed a one month soft block on the broad IP range due to ongoing IP vandalism, and an absence of active admins at sqWP to manage the issue. The annotated block message says to report issues with that block to this page for action / review. I am comfortable with whatever changes my colleagues do to that block, and just ask that this note be updated. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:12, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

I see that Styyx has blocked the upper /17 (...128.0/17), so that may do the trick, so I have removed the /16 at this time.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:20, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

Delete user page with "block history"Edit

A follow-up on this request: please delete my sq:wikt user page, the 2009 block there resulted from a misunderstanding. Thanks in advance and regards, Wutsje (talk) 20:59, 3 December 2022 (UTC)

Done. ~~~~

OAuth permissionsEdit

  Preferably permission requests should be submitted using the form from Special:OAuthConsumerRegistration.

After submitting this form, you will receive a token that your application will use to identify itself to MediaWiki. An OAuth administrator will need to approve your application before it can be authorized by other users. It is possible to request approval using {{oauthapprequest}}, please create a sub-section to this part.

A few recommendations and remarks:

  • Try to use as few grants as possible. Avoid grants that are not actually needed now.
  • Versions are of the form "major.minor.release" (the last two being optional) and increase as grant changes are needed.
  • Please provide a public RSA key (in PEM format) if possible; otherwise a (less secure) secret token will have to be used.
  • Use the JSON restrictions field to limit access of this consumer to IP addresses in those CIDR ranges.
  • You can use a project ID to restrict the consumer to a single project on this site (use "*" for all projects).
  • The email address provided must match that of your account (which must have been confirmed).

Please unapprove the following OAuth applications, all of which have been superseded by other applications. --Lucas Werkmeister (talk) 20:35, 1 November 2022 (UTC)
